SISD’s Hernando Middle, MECHS are finalists for national education award

Two Socorro Independent School District campuses – SPC. Rafael Hernando III Middle School and Mission Early College High School — are finalists for the 2016 National Excellence in Urban Education Awards.

The two schools are the only ones from the El Paso area chosen. They will compete with 20 other campuses chosen nationwide by the National Center for Urban School Transformation. Hernando and Mission Early College meet all the rigorous criteria for the award, including high achievement, arduous curriculum, excellent instruction and enthusiastic student engagement.

2015 National Education Award2“This is phenomenal recognition for Team SISD,” said SISD Superintendent José Espinoza. “To be two of 22 schools in the country to become finalists is testament to the outstanding work that is being accomplished by the faculty and staffs of the schools.”

Beginning in early January, each finalist will receive a site visit from an NCUST evaluation team of researchers and practitioners. The schools with the greatest evidence of the criteria will be named bronze, silver or gold winners.

“These schools are among the best urban schools in the nation,” said Dr. Joseph F. Johnson, Jr., the center’s executive director, in a press release.

This is not the first time a SISD school has been recognized for this award. In 2014, Escontrias Elementary was given a bronze award by the National Center for Urban School Transformation.
